Blacky's Briefing: Looking at Past and Present Trophy Ties
Tuesday night's Velocity Trophy match was sandwiched between the FA Cup and FA Trophy ties which was certainly not ideal. However it did give me the opportunity to be able to shuffle things around a bit and look at a few options.
Whitstable are on a good run of form and they deserved their 2 goal load at half time. I wasn’t happy with elements of our play in the first half but in the second half we performed a lot better. We dominated possession but our quality in the final third wasn’t up to its usual high standard.
We now move onto the FA Trophy this Saturday. The last cup competition left for us and we’re up against a Phoenix Sports side who have started their season well; currently 2nd in the league.
I expect my players to be hurting from the two recent cup exits and I know if we perform to somewhere near our maximum then we are in for an exciting afternoon in Barnehurst.
See you Saturday
